Confirmed report of battery on female Penguins fan and use of racial and homophobic slurs

This happened after the game during the tradition of Pens fans going on the steps across from the Verizon Center to peacefully chant for their favorite team.

We heard a woman was punched on the steps, and we initially thought it was Alex Semin, but it was a female Penguins fans who has been assaulted by a male Caps fan.  #OccupyTheSteps
